"Our church is living at a crossroads, just like that which is occurring in churches all over America. It is the juncture of life and death. It is the place where one stands and looks around--north, south, east, and west-and makes life-changing determination on which way to go forward." - from the introduction
We experience change every day. Our homes, workplaces, neighborhoods, and cities are changing right before our eyes. There is already a plethora of data and more surveys are released on a regular basis confirming the change we find ourselves in. Crunching more data may be helpful but will not revolutionize, let alone save, a declining church. We need creative thinking done by people who are not afraid to change what is not working.
Written by two creative pastors with very different but successful, the Jesus Insurgency is a breathtaking book that will help you discover how the church can live out its mission and ignite a movement of new life. You will be inspired to create new ways of doing ministry and encouraged to think through how ministry is done within your church. This book is not just a theoretical concept, but, rather, a practical guide on how pastors and leaders can effectively work outside the box to fulfill the church's mission to make new disciples of Jesus Christ. While geared toward a United Methodist audience, this book speaks to leaders from all denominations.
If we pay attention, we can let this Jesus Insurgency create new life.
